Unhappy Elevators Again

Ok. I know you have discus it a lot but I want to make an automatic elevator.
I have a 3 floor building and I need an elevator that will automatically stop for 8 sec in each floor and open the floors door (or force field) how I do this thing.
Well I have seen it in Forbidden Twilight (a map for jk2). Another thing the tutorial link for elevator in page http://www.lucasforums.com/showthrea...hreadid=110416
from wedge2211 is broken I thinkÖ. (Or am I wrong?)

The only thing I can suggest is to use a script. Make your lift, and then use a script to move it on the z-axis the required number of game units, use a wait command in the script with the value 8000.

Put that in a loop for 3 iterations, create another loop that has the elevator going down (a negative value on the z-axis).

Loop that 3 times and put those 2 loops in a big infinte loop.

Don't ask me for the code as all I do to create scripts is press the buttons that look correct, but the above pseudo-pseudo-code should do the trick!

I can do the theory but not the practice. Anyone out there want to explain this better?

Some pseudocode:

loop forever
begin

loop 3 times
begin
move platform z=512
wait (8000)
end

loop 3 times
begin
move platform z=-512
wait (8000)
end

end

Ya mis-read what he said (even though it was bad english)...he's talking about an elevator, think how the doors operate as an elevator moves and re-read his post
